Buck Owens – I Finally Gave Her Enough Rope To Hang lyrics

I never told her the what not to do's
I'm just not tyin', down kind
I've thought I could hold her much closer to me
By giving her freedom a mind.

I figured someday that she would outgrow her flare
For the flirtin' and flinging
I finally gave her enough rope to hang her
And she's still out there swinging.

I never pryed into the where's and the why's
No matter what time she came in
While I thought she was out playin' bridge with the girls
She was out playin' games with the men.

Too late I discovered she had too much slack
Like a fool to a dream I'm still clinging
I finally gave her enough rope to hang her
And she's still out there swinging.

--- Instrumental ---

Now, here I sit with the why do I do's
While she's running round wild and free
I tried to give her a mind of her own
But she couldn't keep it on me.

Now, just like a fool I still sit here at home
And wait by a phone, that's my bringing
I finally gave her enough rope to hang her
And she's still out there swinging.

I finally gave her enough rope to hang her
And she's still out there swinging...
